Hello. I just found this site, and so glad I did. I just received news that there is a good chance that my cat has fibrosarcoma. I am a mess. To make matters worse, I never heard until this past weekend that getting your cat vaccinated can cause this!! I tried to be a good pet owner and keep her protected by getting her vaccinated, and now I feel that I gave her a death sentence!
My Prissy is 16 years old. Any other cat at 16 yrs., I wouldn't consider putting them through a surgery to remove the tumor, but Prissy is no ordinary 16 yr. cat. Any vet that has seen her is amazed with her age. My sister is a vet tech, and is encouraging me to think about having the surgery.
Prissy saw the vet on Saturday, (I found the lump Friday night), and since then my world has been turned upside down. I really thought it was an abscess, but after researching fibrosarcoma online, I truely believe now that is what it is. I have been in limbo since getting the news. Tonight the vet called me and told me she discussed Prissy's case with a surgeon. They recommend a biopsy. It is scheduled for Monday. I feel at least I will have a definte answer, and can go from there. It has been explained to me that if she needs the surgery, it is very aggressive. The "lump" is on the side of her spine, up near her neck. They will have to remove muscle and go right down to her spine. I'm now reading that in a lot of cases, the tumor will grow back again.
I'm at such a loss. I would never do anything to Prissy unless I knew she could handle it. I am confident that she will do well having the surgery if it is needed. She is very strong spirited. I really can't afford the surgery, but will come up with the money if it means having more time her.
I guess I'm just hoping to hear if anyone has has to deal with fibrosarcoma with their cat and what the outcome was...with surgery or without...or just any advice or thoughts.

Thanks.
